Quick and easy leather tinder pouches

After having some leather left over from making my last knife sheathes I figured that I would make a couple of simple traditional pouches to collect tinder in.

Here’s how I did it….

First I picked the largest and most supple piece of leather I have left.

Then I use a dinner tray and a marker to draw my outline

Cut around your outline

Use a punch, a nail or a sharp piece of pipe to punch your draw string holes

With your holes punched pick your draw string which could be para cord or a leather strip. Thread Your chosen cord through.

Tie both ends of your cord together and try out your new pouch.

These could be used to store anything from tinder, flint and steel, fire kits or even sweets they re versatile and light.

Unlike my knife sheaths I don’t want to wax these, as I want to keep the leather supple, so to look after it and water proof it I m using a rub of mink oil.

This is a nice project for a quick and effective pouch.

Thanks for reading if you have any questions Dont hesitate to ask.

Have a good day and stay safe out there.
